PURE GOLD !! What a great interview and Very insightful. Intestinal permeability is turning out to be such a major player with a multitude of disease processes. I remember a time, not that long ago, when it was not even considered an entity.
Thanks much !!
p.s. love the term “bingery”. Exactly how it affects me.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
